Work

Work means something
like paying the rent
and not drinking early
unless you work late.

Work means something
like paying taxes
and not stealing old fruit
from the corner store.

Fat busy hands
make love of their work,
but still die poor, in debt
to a life too big.

Work needs masters
To herd the workers
into stations and cells
and wooden boxes.

You were born to
work for the masters
so that you might rest in
your wooden boxes.

Rest tomorrow,
there is so much work
please do not remember
me to God.
